The 2014 US Midterm Elections were held on November 4, 2014 to elect 35 members of the United States Senate and all 435 members of the United States House of Representatives for the 115th Congress. 

The Republican Party took seven Democratic seats in the Senate, including open seats in West Virginia, Montana, Michigan, and South Dakota. They also defeated incumbents in Arkansas, Louisiana, and North Carolina while defending all of their seats. Democrats Mark Begich (AK) and Mark Udall (CO) held on in close races to defend their seats, while Scott Brown's decision not to run gave Jeanne Shaheen an easy win in New Hampshire. 

The House of Representatives elections were largely a wash, with five Democratic-held seats (IL-10, IL-12, IL-17, NC-7 and UT-4) going to the Republicans and two Republican-held seats (CA-31 and PA-6) going to the Democrats for a net Republican pickup of 3.
